MRC Epidemiology Unit : Data Sharing

Studying at Cambridge


ADDITION-Europe Study

ADDITION is the Anglo-Danish-Dutch Study of Intensive Treatment in People With Screen Detected Diabetes in Primary Care.

ADDITION-Europe is a basic data set containing information at baseline and 5-year follow-up from all four European centres: Cambridge, Leicester, Denmark and the Netherlands. We also hold more extensive data sets for Cambridge; see the ADDITION-Cambridge, ADDITION-Plus, ADDITION-Cambridge-screening and ADDITION-10% pages.

Data collection has finished for this study and data cleaning is nearing completion. Data cleaning has been carried out by ADDITION Denmark and ADDITION Cambridge staff. Cambridge contacts for this data are Simon Griffin (PI), Rebecca Simmons (Investigator Scientist), and Clare Boothby (Data Analyst).

This database follows the Unit's generic model and standardises its structure and management to match other studies for data sharing.
